Find Inspiration at the National Gallery of Victoria
The National Gallery of Victoria is the crown gem of Melbourne's cultural landscape. Not only is it Australia's oldest public art gallery, but it also receives the most visitors. In two metropolitan locations, you can view more than 70,000 pieces of art from Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and America. The St. Kilda Road building, which debuted in 1968, is home to the international collection. The building is renowned for The Great Hall, where visitors are encouraged to lie on the floor and gaze at the colorful stained-glass ceiling. The Ian Potter Gallery in Federation Square is home to the sizable Australian collection, which includes modern mixed media and works spanning Australia's history from Aboriginal to Heidelberg School. The Pioneer by Frederick McCubbin, a massive triptych, is one of the centerpieces. The National Gallery of Victoria often features new exhibits. It offers more than 40 exhibitions annually in addition to special occasions, kid-friendly activities, tours, and concerts. The best part is that admission to the ongoing exhibits is free.
